Dear Paws to Talk,
I love to sing! I feel a sense of contentment that I can’t bark into words when I do it. Although, I must admit the sound I make while singing can send humans and animals running.
One of my friends told me when I sing, I sound like a bunch of female cats in heat. My humans try to stop my from singing because they worry it might annoy our neighbors. I feel oppressed.
I wish I had a beautiful voice so I could sing all day without any problems. Maybe then everyone would gather around me as I sang instead of fleeing? Should I still sing even though I don’t have a pretty voice?

I wish my fur coat wasn’t turning grey but sometimes we don’t get everything we want in life. Nonetheless, I don’t stop showing it off when I am out and about. We have to work with what we were given.
In my opinion, you should sing until the area just below your collar is content. Some beings like singing while they are in the bath or shower. Why don’t you make that a new singing venue?
Ignore those that don’t think you have a beautiful singing voice. Not all of us were meant to sing opera.
If you keep singing, maybe you will eventually find your perfect pitch? Those crowds may indeed flock to hear you. However, if you remain off-key with no audience it is fine just as long as you enjoyed yourself.
The only being you have to satisfy is you.
